3D printing meet up
« on: August 12, 2013, 04:59:24 PM »
Hello, my name is Mark.  I posted this in the General Discussion section as well as I am a newbie and missed this section. 
  I was wondering if there were any 3D printing enthusiasts here that would be willing to meet me at the shop to look at the printers and talk materials, etc. 
I am trying to determine if 3D printing could actually meet a production need for the company I work for. 
Best time is during the week between 9-4.
Thanks in advance!

-Mark

How's Thursday look? I would love to show you what we've got going on and help see what your're looking at doing.


Thanks!

Great!  I am checking on some times to get out of the office on Thursday.  I am shooting for 10:30 at the moment, but I need to verify.  I will reply again later today with the final time.
Is there any particular time you are NOT available between 9-4 on Thursday?

I can be flexible. A tentative 10:30 it is, I'll put it on my calendar! Email me at Pockybum522@gmail.com if you need to change the time.

HI Guys, My friend Katherine and I are also newbies at the Lab. We were going to try to swing by the lab today(Aug14th) after 4pm to see if anyone was using the 3D printers so we could watch/learn. If no joy today, could we drop by Thur also, and piggyback on your 3D meeting? We'd be glad to browse around the room during any confidential/proprietary discussion.


Thanks, Tom

I'll be at the lab from 3:00pm to 6:15pm this afternoon. You're welcome to stop by. If you don't make it this afternoon, I'd be glad to host you tomorrow at 10:30. See you all soon!

I haven't the foggiest, but it makes it really hard to drive east. If you find out what it is, let me know.

Would you mind listing the programs you mentioned from yesterday?  Did you say you liked NetFab?   
Also, did you order the UltiMaker straight from the manufacturer or from somewhere else?

Thanks!
